NASA Celebrates Apollo

This live program at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC highlights the success of America's space program as it met President Kennedy's challenge of putting a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s. Neil Armstrong, Apollo 11 Commander, who was the first person to set foot on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969, features prominently.

NASA Astronauts Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing On Board the Space Station

NASA Astronauts Christina Koch and Nick Hague join the world in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing — only, they do it from around 250 miles (~400 km) above the Earth's surface on board the International Space Station.

The accomplishments of the Apollo program did not only take humans farther than ever before, but they have prepared us to take humans even farther. Learn more about our plans to bring humans to the Moon, Mars and beyond with our Artemis program:

All Space Considered Remembers Apollo 10

Griffith Observatory staff invites you celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 10 mission to the Moon with a special presentation of All Space Considered Remembers Apollo 10. The program takes place on in the Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon on Saturday, at 6:00 p.m. PDT May 18, 2019, the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 10.

The Apollo 10 mission, launched on May 18, 1969, took astronauts Tom Stafford, John Young, and Gene Cernan to within nine miles of the lunar surface. The astronauts did not land, but they tested critical systems that made the historic Moon landing of Apollo 11 possible two months later. Griffith Observatory staff describes the mission and its many historic firsts.

The event is free and open to the public. All Space Considered Remembers Apollo 10 will be streamed live on Griffith Observatory TV:

“The Spirit of Apollo” - A Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 8 Mission to the Moon

This month marks the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 8 mission, which was the first to bring humans to another world as they orbited the Moon on Christmas Eve, 1968.

To commemorate this historic event in human spaceflight and NASA’s history, Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum will present “Spirit of Apollo,” a program celebrating the milestone Apollo 8 mission, which brought humanity together and pushed the limits of exploration.

The event took place at 8 p.m. EST, Tuesday, Dec. 11, at Washington National Cathedral.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Apollo Moon landing | Retro TV

At 12:56pm AEST on July 21, 1969 Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the Moon. To mark the 20th anniversary of this historic moment, the ABC produced a television special, Quantum: Footprints on the Moon.

First broadcast in 1989, this documentary is a definitive account that wonderfully captures the spirit of the times and the excitement behind the first mission to land on the Moon.

Apollo 9: 'A Hell of a Ride'

50 years ago, we tested the capabilities of our Moon landing spacecraft in Earth’s orbit. Commander James McDivitt, Command Module Pilot David Scott and Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart performed systems checks and gathered data. The Lunar Module and the Command Module separated by nearly 100 miles and an engine burn check brought them back together. A challenging rendezvous and docking proved the abilities of the hardware. This historic mission launched on March 3, 1969 as an engineering mission and paved the way for future Apollo missions.

Apollo 40th Anniversary - Neil Armstrong

Neil Armstrong was a civilian test pilot assigned to test the X-15 rocket airplane before becoming an astronaut in 1962. He made his first space flight in 1966 on Gemini 8 with David R. Scott.

On July 20, 1969, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed the Apollo 11 lunar module Eagle on the moon. Armstrong left the module and explored the lunar surface.

Apollo 50th: First Crew Launches on Apollo 7

On October 11th, 1968, just 15 months from President Kennedy’s deadline for a moon landing, NASA launched its first Apollo crew into space. Apollo 7’s Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele, and Walter Cunningham spent 11 days in low Earth orbit, thoroughly testing the Apollo Command and Service Module’s systems. The crew also won an Emmy for the first live television broadcasts from an American spacecraft.

Apollo 11: 20th Anniversary

The Apollo 11 Mission which culminated in the first manned lunar landing on July 20, 1969 is recounted. Historical footage of preparation, takeoff, stage separation, the Eagle Lunar Lander, and the moon walk accompany astronauts Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin, and Neil Armstrong giving their recollections of the mission are shown.

Apollo 11 yesterday, Next Giant Leap tomorrow on This Week @NASA

NASA is celebrating the 45th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 mission to the moon. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, with crewmate Michael Collins manning the command service module from lunar orbit, became the first humans on the moon -- with Armstrong's historic first step onto the lunar surface becoming a symbolic giant leap for humanity. Today, with Apollo 11 as inspiration, NASA is taking the steps needed for America's next giant leap, to send astronauts to Mars. The path to Mars will use a stepping stone approach consisting of key elements, including human health and technology research aboard the International Space Station; development and evolution of NASA's Space Launch System rocket and Orion deep space capsule and development of other game-changing technologies to enable tomorrow's missions.

300 Feet to the Moon

After making the 240,000-mile journey to the moon cruising through open space, the last 300 feet down to landing represented the most difficult and dangerous part of the Apollo missions. The Apollo astronauts needed a way to practice that final descent and landing before Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin Buzz Aldrin made the first historic moon landing in their lunar lander named Eagle on July 20, 1969.

Apollo 11: 50th Anniversary Recreation (NASA@My Library)

It is hard to overstate the impact of Apollo 11’s first landing on the Moon. It was humanity’s first step onto another world, an exciting climax to the space race, and the world’s largest rocket at the time. It was a classic story of American ingenuity — leaving our home planet a mere one hundred years after connecting the transcontinental railroad, and only sixty-six years after the Wright Brothers’ first powered flight.

Commander Neil Armstrong spoke eloquently about what an honor it was for him and fellow crew members, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, to accomplish president Kennedy’s goal of reaching the Moon, supported by the combined efforts of four hundred thousand Americans, by the year 1969. This July 20th, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of that accomplishment.

What was the sequence of this incredible mission? Where on the Moon did they land? And how did they return safely to Earth? Join us for a guided recreation of Apollo 11’s journey to see how this mission was executed by crew members and mission control in Houston

ISS Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Message

International Space Station astronauts Steve Swanson and Reid Wiseman salute the Apollo 11 mission on the 45th anniversary of its launch.

When Apollo 11 landed on the moon 45 years ago, says Swanson, this space station that we live on was science fiction. But today it is reality thanks to the legacy of the Apollo astronauts and all the nations that have followed the path to space since then.

Apollo 11 Moon Landing - 50th Anniversary

July 16, 2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Apollo 11 mission. It was on July 21, 1969 that Neil Armstrong became the first person to step onto the moon's surface. Buzz Aldrin joined him on the lunar surface just 19 minutes later. Michael Collins flew the command module Columbia in lunar orbit while Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the moon's surface. I thought I would do my part by putting together this montage as a tribute to what happened 50 years ago. There is no moon hoax, the landing was real. And the earth is not flat.

That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
